Former Charlotte High School star Tyler Cardillo spent a short time at the University of Florida before deciding to focus on academics. After graduating, however, the spark for running reignited and he found himself looking for school that would allow him to get his MBA as well as compete his final year of eligibility of athletics. D2 Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas was the perfect place to do both.

It's ladies only tomorrow at Charlotte's Lady Tarpon Invitational. Nineteen teams are entered, but who will come out on top? We break down each event in our virtual meet!
Boyd Anderson's 40.09 at the 1998 Golden South Classic is the top time in the 4x100m while the epic battles between MNW and STA in the 4x4 in 2011 earned them the first and third fastest marks. Charlotte's 4x800m quartet that finished second at New Balance Outdoor Nationals in 7:30.31 is more than seven seconds faster than any other Florida foursome to run the event. We take a look at the top twenty-five boys relays times in our flrunners.com database.

Charlotte senior Ryan Schnulle has had a successful high school career for the Tarpons. Last year Schnulle was a part of the second fastest 4x8 team ever assembled placing second at New Balance Outdoor Nationals. He was also second in the 800 and 4th in the 1600 at state leading the Tarpons to another team title. Recently, Schnulle decided to end his college recruitment and commit to the University of Florida.
The Charlotte boys are used to being at the top of the 3A cross country rankings. For the past two seasons the Tarpons have finished in the top three, but 2011 is another animal. Ryan Schnulle and Domonic Cardenas are the only names left on a roster that lost five seniors to graduation. It's an experience Schnulle says will be eye opening.
After his team shattered the state 4x800 record and etching their name at #2 All-Time in the United States last weekend, Coach Chris George is still on a high. His Charlotte High School distance crew had high expectations all year long and some were starting to question if they'd be able to put it all together and live up to the hype. They did. Peaking just right, more than a month after the state meet, wasn't easy but they fought to a second place finish of 7:30 at New Balance Outdoor battling with Long Beach Poly to both break the old national high school record.
The Charlotte Boys 4x800 relay headed to North Carolina with hopes of bringing home a national championship. Anthony Borrego, Bryan Hilgar, Ryan Schnulle, and Tyler Cardillo came up just shy to an all-star team from Long Beach, California, but have plenty to brag about. Ryan Schnulle brought the group from fourth place to first where he handed off the baton to Tyler Cardillo who ran a 1:50.08 anchor leg to give the group a time of 7:30.31, the fastest time in state history and the second fastest time in U.S. history.
Charlotte knows they have an uphill battle this season in their quest for a 3A state title. With Belen Jesuit in their classification it's a tough road, but Coach Chris George is pleased with their progress. Since their distant fifth place finish at the FACA Classic in their first meet of the year they've improved each week, including a close 17-point second place finish behind their 3A rivals last week at flrunners. This week they took headed to the Disney Classic for the first time in five years and came away with an unexpected team victory in a close one against Colonial and Ocean City, NJ.
The Holy Trinity All-Star Showdown has become a nice low-key post-season tradition that gives athletes another chance to run fast times without any pressure. There were some great performances in all events, as well as the always fun milk mile, but the most anticipated race of the night was the Boys 4x800 where Charlotte went after a new best time and Bishop Kenny got a second chance of their school record.....
